Wishing everyone a wonderful new year with Suji/Semolina Pudding with Date Palm JaggeryWednesday, December 31, 2014
This is the last post of this year 2014. A whole year went by, when I look back, I did some fruitful job as a blogger, which I never thought of doing when I started blogging as a hobby. Many wonderful opportunities came to me this year and I grabbed and satisfied my clients. I did website reviews for many major websites like Ask me.com, Foodpanda.com, Bigbasket.com, Magickart.in etc. and new product launch reviews for Hudson canola Oil and Paper Boat. My baking talent was featured recently in a leading newspaper named Telegragh India. So, my blog baby is giving me the feeling of fullfillness and more enthusiasm to go on in coming years too. My facebook page has reached 1300+ followers, what else can I want more? I am feeling super happy and super enthusiastic of whatever I have achieved so far. I want to thank God first of all and then my family(kids Specially, who are the tester and unbiased critic of any recipe I try out) and last but not the least, my readers and followers and blog visitors, who are the fuel of my energy and enthusiasm. I promise not to dishearten you all in this year, too. You also promise to stay with me and support me as always.
As the year ends, I am taking the resolution to be more responsible towards my responsibility of being a blogger and will experiment with food more and share with my readers. We, Indians, always celebrate our happiness and success with something sweet. How can I be different in this matter? I'll be sharing a very common but versatile dessert item with a twist, which is more healthy and delicious. It is Sujir payesh(nolen Gur diye) or Semolina pudding with liquid date palm jaggery
You need :
Suji/Semolina : 1 cup

Khejurer Gur/liquid Palm jaggery : ~ 1 cup
